The 19th edition of the Jewish Culture Festival – Singer’s Warsaw kicks-off today before concluding on September 4th.
Featuring a range of concerts, shows, performances, walks and workshops, the event will fuse together aspects of Jewish culture, art and tradition in locations around Warsaw. Keeping in mind current events, organizers have also involved several acts from Ukraine in solidarity with its people.
“We’re not indifferent to our neighbors,” says Gołda Tencer, the creator of the festival. “Although for many people the beginning of 2022 was marked by sad or even tragic events, we strongly believe that our festival will provide a small moment of respite, and maybe even moments joy.”
In line with museum’s traditions, its core will be based around music and theater with several open-air concerts, chamber performances and recitals as well as plays, readings and exhibitions.
On the musical front, Israeli singer Yasmin Levy is being promoted as the prize attraction, and she’ll close the festival with a performance at Teatr Wielki. Aside from that, other highlights will include Klezmer Night in Pl. Defilad, as well as a string of concerts in the Nozyk Synagogue – the only major Warsaw synagogue to survive WWII.
